New Addition – Imports!

This year’s 14th Show ‘n Shine will have a new feature.  We have permission from the Town to close a portion of High Street so that we can feature imports. We thought that this might be a different touch to the show. We will have British, Italian, German, and more in one location as sometimes these vehicles attract their own specific audience.

High Street also features the Fox and Hounds English Pub and the In The BeanTime Cafe, both of which will be having special  features for both show participants and spectators.

Also along  High Street you’ll have the opportunity of stopping into Mr. Popper’s Sweet Shoppe with it’s huge variety of old fashion candies and ice cream. Also Red’s Emporium full of great treasures from year’s gone by and gently “pre-loved” articles.

Pre-registration is $15.00 until August 9th then after that date, registration is $20.00 per vehicle entry.

Rod Run

Friday, August 18th

A&WJason and Lori Kelland from the A&W are again hosting the Friday night Rod Run on August 18th (the night before the Show & Shine) from their restaurant at the Husky Station just north of Ladysmith.

Participants are invited to start showing up at 4:00 pm to get a spot and enjoy some great “timely” entertainment as well as the famous Ladysmith A&W burgers, root beer, fries and fantastic service!

The Rod Run will leave the A&W at 7:00 pm and be escorted into Ladysmith where they travel through the roundabout and along First Avenue. The run goes to Davis Road, across the highway, down to Saltair, then back to the A&W for final party and wrap up.

There are prizes and great stories to swap!
